TL;DR: The user-friendly Nest Cam Indoor is on sale at Amazon for $149.10, saving you $49.90.
It’s difficult to enjoy yourself when you’re paranoid about what’s going on at home. Is the babysitter following instructions? Do pets (or cowboy dolls) actually have secret lives?
In all seriousness, being able to monitor your house while you’re away (or even in a separate room) offers so much peace of mind. If you’re not ready for a full-blown alarm security system, the indoor Nest Cam is one of the best home security cameras and a great place to start. It’s regularly $199, but is on sale for $149.10 at Amazon. (Best Buy, Google, and others only have it on sale for $169.)

Nest is one of the leading brands of home security for one simple reason: They make it easy. Installation of the camera and syncing it to the app is straightforward even for non-tech savvy folk, and it can be placed anywhere from a flat surface or angled on the wall.
The cam itself is inconspicuous, but the way it captures footage will have you feeling omnipresent. With 24/7 live 1080p streaming, a speaker, and a microphone, you’ll be able to see and hear everything that’s going on.
Watch the live stream whenever from your phone, as well as set up alerts for when the kids get home from school or when the electrician stops by. Amazon customer JodiC says it’s a must-have for elderly parents who live far away.
Regularly $199, you can save $49.90 and get it for $149.10.
